Arano (elbow) felt good after a live batting practice session Saturday and remains hopeful that he'll be ready for Opening Day, Matt Breen of The Philadelphia Inquirer reports.
Previous reports indicated that Arano wasn't expected to return from arthroscopic elbow surgery until early in the regular season, but the pitcher himself evidently disagrees with those reports. A player's own optimism about his health shouldn't be taken as gospel, though, and he's yet to pitch in a Grapefruit League game, so the odds appear to be against him. Still, the 25-year-old, who owns a career 2.65 ERA in 74.2 innings, should be pitching in a fairly high-leverage role at some point early in the season.
Arano (elbow) is throwing regular bullpens but is expected to open the season on the injured list, Matt Gelb of The Athletic reports.
Arano is still making his way back from arthroscopic elbow surgery back in May. He was slowed by shoulder soreness over the offseason but appears to be making progress now. That progress is apparently too delayed from him to make the Opening Day roster, but there haven't been any indications that he's set for an extended absence.
Arano (elbow) threw off a mound Thursday, Matt Gelb of The Athletic reports.
Arano underwent arthroscopic elbow surgery back in May, and Gelb adds that he also experienced a bout of offseason shoulder soreness. The fact that he's throwing off a mound means he'll have a shot to be ready by Opening Day, but a trip to the injured list can't be ruled out.
Arano (elbow) played catch from about 100 feet during a workout over the weekend, Scott Lauber of The Philadelphia Inquirer reports.
After requiring season-ending elbow surgery last May, Arano enters spring training behind the majority of the Phillies' other relief candidates. Per Matt Gelb of The Athletic, the right-hander estimated that he would be able to advance to mound work by late February or early March, but it's unclear if he'll be ready to go by the time Opening Day arrives. Whenever he's deemed healthy again, Arano could be a late-inning factor for the Phillies after posting a 2.65 ERA and 26.3 strikeout percentage through his first three years in the majors.
Arano (elbow) was transferred to the 60-day injured list Tuesday.
Arano has been out since April 20 with an elbow injury which eventually required arthroscopic surgery. He doesn't have a clear timetable, though Tuesday's transaction likely doesn't impact him very much, as he's just two weeks shy of having been out for 60 days. The move clears a spot on the 40-man roster for Adam Haseley, who was called up by the Phillies in a corresponding move.
Arano underwent arthroscopic surgery on his right elbow Tuesday, Scott Lauber of The Philadelphia Inquirer reports.
Arano suffered a setback in his recovery from an elbow injury earlier in the month, and after receiving a second option from Dr. Neal ElAttrache, it was determined that he would require a scope. The Phillies have yet to release a timeline for his return, so Arano should be considered out indefinitely for now.
Arano (elbow) will receive a second opinion from Dr. Neal ElAttrache, Meghan Montemurro of The Athletic reports.
Arano has been sidelined since April 20 with an elbow issue. The right-hander apparently felt renewed discomfort during a recent bullpen session, prompting the Phillies to send him for further evaluation. It remains to be seen how this setback will affect Arano's return date, but an updated timeline for his return will hopefully come into focus following his visit with Dr. ElAttrache.
Arano will visit with team doctors within the next two days for further tests on his inflamed elbow, Scott Lauber of The Philadelphia Inquirer reports.
It's unclear whether Arano has suffered a setback. The situation should become clearer once the results of the tests are made public.
Arano was placed on the 10-day injured list with right elbow inflammation Saturday.
Arano had allowed two runs in 4.2 innings prior to suffering the injury. He'll be eligible to return on April 30, but it's not yet clear how much time he's expected to miss.
Arano faced six batters and struck them all out to pick up the win Sunday against the Marlins.
Arano entered a tie game in the bottom of the 12th and proceeded to mow down Marlins' hitters until Jean Segura eventually won the game with a 14th-inning homer. It was a very encouraging outing for a pitcher whose horrendous 45.00 spring ERA sent him unexpectedly to Triple-A to begin the season. He's now thrown four scoreless innings with a 58.3 percent strikeout rate.
Arano was called up from Triple-A Lehigh Valley on Friday.
Arano was sent to the minors to begin the season after allowing 20 runs in four spring innings. He had a quite strong 2.73 ERA in 59.1 major-league innings last season, however, and threw four scoreless innings with a 7:1 K:BB for Lehigh Valley to start this campaign, so the Phillies will hope that his spring struggles were nothing more than a random, brief blip. Edubray Ramos was optioned in a corresponding move.
Arano was optioned to Triple-A Lehigh Valley on Saturday.
Arano had a brutal spring. Opposing hitters hit .654 against him as he allowed a whopping 20 runs in just four innings of work and finished with a 1:7 K:BB. The 24-year-old could still spend the bulk of the season in the majors if he can get back to the form which led him to a 2.57 ERA through 70 career big-league innings, but he clearly has to sort things out in the minors before returning to Philadelphia.
Arano faced six batters Saturday against Houston and did not retire a single one, walking one and allowing five hits and six runs.
Arano's terrible spring continues, and his ERA now sits at 51.00 in three innings of work. It's normally wise to not put too much stake in spring stats, but Arano's could be ugly enough to matter, especially given that he has options remaining.
Arano has allowed 11 runs in three innings of work so far this spring, walking four while striking out just one and allowing three home runs.
The Phillies' bullpen got a lot deeper over the offseason with the additions of David Robertson, Juan Nicasio, Jose Alvarez and James Pazos. Arano's spot hadn't seemed to be in much doubt after he posted a 2.73 ERA last season, but his spring struggles could put his job at risk. He still has options remaining, so if he doesn't sort things out soon he may wind up opening the season at the Triple-A level.
Arano (elbow) struck out one in a scoreless inning Saturday against the Marlins.
Arano had been out for nearly a week due to elbow soreness, but if Saturday's showing is any indication, it appears the issue is behind him now. The right-hander now has a 2.45 ERA and a 9.3 K/9, numbers giving him some value in deeper fantasy leagues as long as he continues pitching in high-leverage situations.
Arano didn't pitch in Tuesday's doubleheader against the Nationals due to right elbow soreness, Matt Breen of The Philadelphia Inquirer reports.
Arano last took the mound Sunday against the Mets, and also pitched in Saturday's game. The severity of the issue remains unclear at this point, and the 23-year-old should be considered day-to-day for the time being. Arano has a 2.50 ERA, 1.19 WHIP and 56:15 K:BB over 54 innings this season.
Arano threw 1.2 scoreless innings in Monday's extra-innings loss to the Diamondbacks, striking out one and allowing three hits.
Arano got into a bit of trouble in the 10th inning, allowing a pair of one-out singles to Paul Goldschmidt and David Peralta, but he got out of the jam and went on to keep the game scoreless through the bottom of the 11th. Arano's season ERA now sits at 2.09 through 43 innings. Seranthony Dominguez remains the Phillies' primary closing option, but he's now given up runs in his last two appearances. Arano is one of a small handful of relievers who could be poised to take over a higher-leverage role and earn the occasional save should Dominguez continue to falter.
Arano had an eventful day Monday, earning a loss in the first half of the doubleheader against the Mets and a save in the second half.
Combined, Arano faced just two batters. In the afternoon game, he was called on the the bottom of the 10th inning in a tie game and promptly gave up a walkoff homer to the first batter he faced (Wilmer Flores). He was brought back in to avenge himself in the bottom of the ninth in the night game, with two outs and the tying run at first base. He got the job done that time, striking out Devin Mesoraco to earn his third save of the season. Arano has earned the Phillies' last three saves, but it's tough to call him a true closer. Manager Gabe Kapler prefers to organize his bullpen by leverage rather than by traditional roles, and in each of those save situations, Seranthony Dominguez was either seemingly unavailable or had pitched in a high-leverage situation earlier in the day. Still, Arano has become one of Kapler's most trusted relievers and should find himself in a fair share of save situations going forward.
Arano gave up a hit and struck out two in a scoreless ninth inning Saturday to record his second save of the season in a 3-2 win over the Pirates.
He's now closed things out in consecutive appearances, and Seranthony Dominguez worked a scoreless eighth inning in front of Arano to pick up the hold. Manager Gabe Kapler hasn't made any announcement about a change at closer, so Dominguez could return to ninth-inning duties soon enough, but Arano seems to be getting a chance in the role and has so far looked comfortable. His 2.25 ERA, 1.06 WHIP and 35:9 K:BB in 32 innings certainly suggest he's ready for whatever high-leverage role he's entrusted with.
Arano earned his first career save by tossing a pair of scoreless innings Wednesday against the Orioles, walking one batter and striking out three.
Arano entered the top of the eighth with a three-run lead and got the job done easily, allowing just a single baserunner over the final two innings. He's posted strong numbers for the Phillies this season, throwing 31 innings with a 2.32 ERA and a 9.6 K/9. He could find himself in high-leverage situations more frequently going forward, though Seranthony Dominguez remains firmly atop the pecking order in the Philadelphia bullpen.
